fun staff
Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Santa Ana, CAAugust 26, 2014
Pros: small hospital
Cons: health insurance
Its not as busy as other hospitals so you work at a great pace but very efficient. We come in orders are already printed so all we have to do is go to the rooms and draw the patients. We execute the specimen after. Coworkers are great. They all help out when in need.
Hardest part of the job are basically the hard sticks but theres always help. I enjoy – more... it because its graveyard so its not so busy. – less

Don't show it if you are smarter than your boss
supervisor (Former Employee), Hammond, INAugust 25, 2014
Pros: good coworkers that try hard
Cons: lack of compassion from managment
Taking care of very sick patients is rewarding but the politics of a for profit business makes it hard to enjoy your work. Most of management has no empathy and when there is a good manager they leave. Hard to make a point. They don't really listen.

Exciting place to work with great treats.
Certified nurse assistant. (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 20, 2014
Pros: a great place to work.
Cons: short and insufficient hours of work per week.
The work at Kindred Hospital, Houston Medical Center campus was the most excited working area. The challenges were rewarding in that they toughened us to handle stressful situations such the daily experience at kindred hospital. A great place to learn for new comers to the field of direct patient care. Most co-workers were very warm hearted and easy – more... going. The hardest part was how to satisfy the family and patients most of who were very frustrated by the prognosis of their diseases. Free parking and occasional free breakfast and lunch meals. – less

Home Health Aide (Current Employee), philadelphia, paAugust 14, 2014
I love being a caregiver because I have compassion to help those who are not able to do the work or don't have the mobility to do so. It's always great to get to know your client/ patient like's and dislike so you can give the best direct support.

What an experience!
Float-pool LPN Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 8, 2014
Pros: experience, money
Cons: adjusting to different locations.
A typical day @ Kindred consisted of bedside patient care for acute patients, many of which were on ventilators. I provided primary care to about 4 patients. This was my first experience with a patient on a ventilator. The management staff and my co-workers were very helpful. The hardest part of this job was being at a different location each time I – more... worked and learning the lay-out of the unit. The most enjoyable part was the overall experience and the pay. – less

LVN/Telemetry (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXAugust 6, 2014
Pros: kept current with skills
Cons: long hours constantly working occasionally working through breaks
Worked 7a-7p, usually over worked. Skilled nurse usually always had 8-10 patients on critical unit with IV therapy & Vents with multiple medications or tube feedings not allowing enough time for care needed for each patient. Management did not seem up on floor issues. Co-workers were helpful to each other. Trying to find enough time to help each patient. – more... Going home after a long day knowing you had done the best you could. – less

Fun place to work
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Swansea, MAAugust 6, 2014
On a typical day at work I would get my assignment and go to wash my residents, and feed or help with their breakfast and lunch. During any down time I would spend time with the residents and get to know them bring them for walks outside or wheel them through the corridors.
I learned that being a CNA is a hard job but at the end of the day when you – more... see your residents clean and happy , it really fills your heart with joy.
Management was always available if needed.
My Co-workers were pleasant and helpful.
Hardest Part of the job is getting close with these residents and walking in one day to see they have passed.
Most enjoyable part of the job is learning residents past histories and learning about how things use to be back then. Also the joy you feel knowing that your their to help these people. – less
